Hawaiian BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwich

A couple months back, I finally caved and bought my first slow cooker. It was only twenty dollars at Target and I could'nt wait to get home and start making delicious barbecue and one-pot meals with it that I didn't have to worry about during the day. Well, typical me only made one meal with it (the day I bought it) and then promptly forgot about my shiny new Crock Pot.
That is, until I came across this recipe for Hawaiian BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches by Tasty Kitchen member myretrokitchen. The recipe was incredibly simple (basically just dump everything together in the crock pot, turn it on and six hours later you have dinner!) and turned out to be absolutely delicious. The pineapple chunks give the barbecue a delightful sweet surprise and using chicken was a nice change of pace from typical pulled pork.
Here’s what you need!

Simple, right? Just chicken (I used thighs for more flavor), your favorite barbecue sauce, a can of pineapple and an onion. Love it.

The recipe says to first put the chicken at the bottom of the Crock Pot…

Then, cover it with diced onion.

Followed by a can of pineapple chunks.

Amie says you can either save the pineapple juice to add to the sauce at the end for sweetness, but I prefer a more savory barbecue sauce so I tossed mine.

Next comes my favorite part: adding the sauce! Coming from the South, I love me some tangy vinegar based barbecue sauce, but for this recipe I chose my tomato-based favorite—Stubb’s.

You can never have too much barbecue sauce, no matter what anyone tells you.

All that only took about four minutes and now all there was left to do was turn the slow cooker on low and let ‘er stew!

At the end of the day, after the chicken had been slowly cooking for about seven hours, I removed the meat from the sauce and shredded it before adding it back in to soak up all the yummy barbecue goodness.

Delicious! I ate barbecue for dinner and then lunch the next day. Even my friend who claims to hate pineapple, absolutely loved this meal and devoured two sandwiches in the speed of light.
Now, party like a Hawaiian! 
Here's some cooking music from a great band that happens to be from Hawaii!
